transform an industry:
Take a look at some of today’s conference snaps.
#MTHCON23 brand eins opening talk: Transforming an Industry
For a long time it looked as if the emerging streaming platforms like Netflix, Amazon, Disney etc. would catapult TV broadcasters worldwide into irrelevance. Digital offerings
from public and private TV stations were considered dull, ill-considered and barely used. The viewers of the future, it was said, would neither watch linear offerings nor the
supposedly outdated content. The demise of classic television seemed only a matter of time.
Clean Film IT Lab: A Deep Dive into Sustainable IT & Cloud Infrastructures for Film Production
We are thrilled to announce the first Clean Film IT Lab, which aims to explore ecological sustainability in film production. The event, led by Prof. Lena Gieseke, is a
collaborative effort between the Filmuniversität, the Hasso Plattner Institut, and the MediaTech Hub Conference.
Strategies to monetize the streaming boom: SVOD, AVOD, FAST, and more
The streaming landscape is more complex now than ever, with the offer of both content and streaming services out there increasing exponentially. With choices at an all-time-high,
subscriber numbers are falling for individual services, and broadcasters are actively seeking new ways to monetize their increasingly expensive content. The main streaming models
currently in discussion are SVOD, AVOD, and FAST.
LIVE in concert: German Film Orchestra Babelsberg
A conference right on the premises of a film studio – where else can you find that?! And the MediaTech Hub Conference can fully embrace this privilege, quite literally: On the
evening of September 27, 2023, the German Film Orchestra Babelsberg will give an exclusive concert for participants of #MTHCON23. Over 40 musicians will perform
well-known (and possibly unknown) film scores directly in the recording hall of the film orchestra, and you can experience it live.
NVIDIA's Vision for AI Integration and Content Creation (..and a sneak peek into some AI use cases in filmmaking that you can use today!)
Companies like NVIDIA who enable innovation are at the core of the transformation of the AV industry. Rick Grandy, Principle Solutions Architect, shares their vision for the
future with an emphasis on content creation assisted by AI technologies.
Real-world case studies of AI use in filmmaking
Over last years, AI has revolutionized media, significantly impacting film and TV production. From scriptwriting to editing, subtitling, CGI, VFX, and even diversity tracking, AI
technologies have brought unprecedented efficiency and innovation to the filmmaking process and thereafter. By leveraging AI-powered tools and algorithms, filmmakers can now
streamline their workflows, saving time and resources, while unlocking new creative possibilities.

#MTHCON23 & Sustainability
When it comes to sustainability, we at #MTHCON23 prefer actions rather than words!
What does the audience actually want to see? And how can they find it?
At the heart of every creative project lies a burning question: do we know what captivates our audience? And as if that isn't enough of a challenge, how can we make sure that in a
sea of content, our work reaches its audience?
MediaTech and the Future of Journalism: Fake News, Validated Content and AI
Synthetic video content, AI-generated fake news, misleading text or visual information – MediaTech can be used in the information industry for both good and bad. And journalism
needs to redefine itself to take back its own role: getting validated journalism to the audience quickly.
The global tech vision for the audiovisual industry
To wrap up #MTHCON23, we are joined by MediaTech visionary and ecosystem builder Sten-Kristian Saluveer. He’s the Head of Cannes NEXT, an executive conference and
innovation-driven business development platform exploring the future of the entertainment sector. Sten will share with us his most important takeaways on audiences, AI and data,
content, and monetisation, summarizing two-days worth of content from a media technologies professional perspective.

MediaTech is a daily reality for any audience. But what are the MediaTech-based answers to our increasingly savvy audiences’ demands?
In the age of VOD, how can content owners attract more eyeballs and for longer – in a word, how can they sell more “popcorn”?
Generative AI is front page news right now. How will it disrupt the industry – with new workflows, better tools or even scriptwriting?
The audiovisual industry potentially has vast quantities of data to enhance production and distribution. But too much of this data is stuck in silos. How can we boost access to data?
Although MediaTech is changing rapidly, the audiovisual industry is still mired in tradition. It’s time to transform our mindset. How to navigate new collaborations and rethink the whole supply
